This article is about Waddle Dees who swing on ropes. For Waddle Dees in a general context, see Waddle Dee.

Swinging Waddle Dee[Japanese title] is an enemy which first appeared in Kirby Super Star Ultra. This enemy is a Waddle Dee who is swinging from a rope in a back and forth motion. In Kirby Super Star Ultra and Kirby's Return to Dream Land, this motion is typically parallel to Kirby's plane of operation, but in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, Swinging Waddle Dees can swing in perpendicular instead, coming in and out of the background.

Swinging Waddle Dee's rope can be cut using any Copy Ability that can cut ropes in other contexts, like a String Platform. This will cause the swinging Waddle Dee to fall to the floor, then start walking as normal. Even without such an ability, however, Swinging Waddle Dee can still be defeated by attacking the Waddle Dee directly, and can still be inhaled. Waddle Doo can also be seen swinging from a rope occasionally.
